Series 2 - Lesson 2 - Annotation 12

What was Jesus' custom in the matter of self-identification?

12. Jesus recognized Himself as God's "image" and knew that God's "likeness" was in the process of being brought forth, yet He continually affirmed that the Father within did the work.

It is a law that we manifest as that with which we identify ourself. Jesus' custom was to identify Himself with His real or Christ self, the Son of God, the Word, the I AM, the Logos. If we would identify ourself with God as Jesus did, then the errors of human consciousness, built up through acceptance of the concept of man as merely a biological organism, must be denied. We must refuse to use the powers of the I AM to produce conditions in mind, body, and affairs based on false conceptions.

"Man can use I AM power to restore health and bring increased happiness ... some people are using this power in a material way, neglecting soul culture, building up the external without taking the intermediate step between the supreme Mind and its manifestation in the outer" (Jesus Christ Heals 124).
